Yesterday saw the arrival of Śrīpāda Bhakti Mādhurya Bon Mahārāja from Italy. Śrīpāda Bon Mahārāja is the ācārya of the 'Shri Chaitanya Shridhara Sanga' and will be staying with us at Rupanuga Bhajan Ashram for two months. Śrīpāda Bon Mahārāja brought suitcases of gifts from his land in Italy where they grow so much of their own fruits and grains.
